Checked to make sure roller wasn't pressing too hard on the tire. Backed it off a half rotation on the screw and much quieter. This appeared to be the problem. Also making sure tire properly...

Ok, that's the info I needed about the height versus reach. I'm looking for height. My bars are in a good location, but the "max" line is exposed a bit on the quill. Thanks.

Quill Stem Length

I would like to replace my present 2.22 cm quill stem with a longer one. When the spec says it is 130 mm, what is that measurement? Is that the length that can safely extend outside frame?

Have a 1985 Raleigh Technium mtb with 6-cog freewheel. Starting just this spring, when I pedal hard (standing) up a hill, the rear wheel shifts in the dropouts. The cog side shifts forward, which...

Took entire bike in to shop. They were very nice about it and put it right on stand. Going to replace the freewheel with a 14-28. Doubt I would have used the largest cog anyway these days. Have...
